|North Coast is finally flat calm|

I went up to Gerstle Cove today to do a quick dive.
During my surface swim out I could make out the shapes of all kinds of stars and things on the bottom in the middle of the cove which is about 20 feet deep, so the vis is starting to pick up and it looks like we will be getting some great conditions finally.
I dropped down outside of the marker into about 25 feet of water and followed a heading of 210 degrees. This put me right in the path of the tall pinnacles with all the metridiums, then past that I found the canyon and got to about 88 feet before I turned around. The vis in the canyon was lower, about 10 feet, kind of murky and dark.
For water temps I had 52 degrees which is about the average for California Latitude 39. Water temp was the same on the surface as at depth. We donít have thermoclines up here.
If anyone is planning a trip north I can say the conditions are good right now, FYI.
